Hot Yoga Class Descriptions

Hot Yoga & Barre Class Descriptions

Beginners’ Yoga:  is a program for newcomers to yoga, which will cover basic postures along with yoga etiquette and principles, as well as get you more comfortable in the hot room.

Restorative yoga: is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through stretching and opening the body with blocks and straps. The experience will help calm you down, still your mind, and undo some of the postural stresses from daily life.

Yin: is a style that targets the deep connective tissues of the body (vs. the superficial tissues) and the fascia that covers the body.  Postures are held for long periods, in some cases more than 5 minutes.

Hatha: This class will differ among instructors, but you will experience a variety of standing postures and floor poses to open, lengthen, strengthen and stretch the body. 

Kriya flow: is a practice that incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras. The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.

Slow flow: is a class incorporating gentle sequencing of vinyasas and postures, holding postures for depth and alignment, and some core work.  It may not be as intense as hatha flow, but opens the muscles, breath and mind to the intention of movement.

40 in 60:  is a class at the intermediate level which is taught as a sequence linked together with vinyasa flows. Emphasis will be on the synergy between breath and movement to help you deepen your practice.

Hot Core: is a class that emphasizes building core strength and spinal mobility.

Hatha flow: is a more advanced practice that involves a series of postures or asanas that focuses on the flow between movements, and linking breath to movement.

26 in 60: is an advanced or athletic practice which is a type of hatha yoga characterized by a set series of 26 postures and breathing exercises, performed in a heated room to improve strength, balance, flexibility and concentration.

Barre (unheated class): Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class - combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training. Most classes incorporate a ballet barre and use classic dance moves such as plies, alongside static stretches. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements.

Ashtanga: is a dynamic, physically demanding practice that synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga, with its many vinyasas, is great for building core strength and toning the body.
